Bread of Life Center
North County Program of the San Diego Rescue Mission
Addressing the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness in North County San Diego.
The Bread of Life Center offers a safe and nurturing environment for people desiring a better life. In the summer of 2020, Bread of Life teamed up with the San Diego Rescue Mission to serve our city’s most vulnerable population. Standing together to serve the hurting, hungry, and poor with the love and grace of Jesus Christ to get people off the streets permanently.
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
– John 6:35
For 20 years, Bread of Life has served Oceanside by meeting tangible, short-term needs and providing a welcoming, loving community for those in need of hope and compassion. What started with a few volunteers distributing bagged meals and clothing in parks and on the streets has become a multi-faceted resource for those facing hardship. Now, the program operates with 60+ volunteers weekly to get people off the streets permanently. Each unique service provided is an opportunity for guests to encounter the love of God and get the help they need.
